Napa Wine Project profiles Mike & Molly, the Moore Vineyard, and the 2012 Zinfandel


The Napa Wine Project is a comprehensive and respected blog by David Thompson, who has considerable experience tasting, reviewing and guiding in the Napa Valley.  In late 2014, he visited with Mike & Molly at the Moore Vineyard and tasted through the 2012 vintage. He writes that the 2012 is "elegant with bright fruit, blackberry, raspberry and red licorice complemented with baking spices and just a hint of mocha that show deeper in the aroma as the wine breathes. Mike mentioned that these old vines seem to have a good balance in the vineyard and that quality is evident in the wine. The palate is smooth on entry with well integrated fine grained tannins that linger slightly, outlasted by the fruit flavors. More red fruit shows than black fruit on the palate. This wine has good acidity."
